2 - 5 May 2014 Training Camp

Congratulations to Sensei Peter Brennan & the Adelaide Dojo for hosting its inaugural Adelaide Kyokushin Budo Gasshuku. The gracious hospitality is to be commended.
Some valuable knowledge conversed down through the ranks. From passive yoga stretching to kata bunkai & weaponry. From what seems a passive gesture to what could be. From what seems insignificant to a greater awareness.
They are all humble steps that were experienced by the gathering & all left with new vigor & intent to persevere the rigors of the Kyokushin way.

5 - 7 October 2013 Bunkai

Bunkai is a part of martial arts which is often neglected. Bunkai (分解?), literally meaning "analysis" or "disassembly", is a term used in Japanese martial arts referring to the application of fighting techniques extracted from the moves of a "form" (kata). (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bunkai)
Elmar T. Schmeisser, a pioneer in the analysis and application of karate kata, coined the phrase "A block is a lock is a blow is a throw" and with this in mind we had an insightful weekend session.
